For some it is a classic accompaniment for tea, for us it is also one of the most versatile ingredients in the kitchen: evaporated milk. This is due to its creaminess based on the production process. Basically, evaporated milk is made from regular milk that is mildly heated and has had about half the water removed, which gives the product a thick, rich texture similar to cooking cream, but with less than half the fat.
Containing only 8.1% fat, Bonny Full Cream Evaporated Milk is a lighter variant to enrich all your favourite recipes – whether sweet or savoury dishes or drinks – while keeping the fine creaminess. So you can enjoy tasty food without any guilty conscience. Further benefit: made from 100% pure cow’s milk, Bonny Full Cream Evaporated Milk is also a good source of calcium and the added vitamins A and D boost its nutritional value.
Learn what great things you can do with this classic kitchen staple. Our inspirational ideas below will surely bring out the culinary explorer in you.
1. Use it as a substitute for whipping cream
Full cream evaporated milk is a reduced fat alternative to liquid whipping cream that gives extra richness to creamy dishes. You can also use a lighter version by adding low fat evaporated milk. Just substitute the equal amount of whipping cream for evaporated milk. And if you need whipped cream, just freeze the can for about 30 minutes and beat at high speed until it turns stiff. Sweeten it with sugar to taste just as regular whipped cream. But, better use it right away, because it might not hold its shape for too long.
2. Refine tea and other drinks
Bonny Evaporated Milk is often used for tea enrichment, but it is also perfect for adding a creamy flavour to your favourite hot and cold drinks, whether this is cocoa or a shake. And if you like coffee, you can refine it either with evaporated milk or with Bonny Coffee Creamer – a liquid dairy coffee creamer containing 3% fat and made with 100% pure cow’s milk perfect for your coffee as it softens it, but preserves the taste.
3. Use it as a substitute for drinking milk
If you like it pure, evaporated milk can also be used as a substitute for regular milk. Just mix ½ cup evaporated milk with ½ cup of water to get 1 cup of regular milk. If you want to drink it pure, the taste might differ a bit, but for milkshakes or smoothies it adds a fine creaminess.
4. Enrich sweet and savoury dishes
Actually, it can be said that evaporated milk is an ideal ingredient for all-purpose cooking and baking, especially as a substitute for cream in most main dishes, savoury soups and sauces or casseroles. But if you prefer it sweeter, you can also add it to desserts, cakes or even oatmeal and cereals to prepare a tasty breakfast every day.

The new school term is about to start soon – so it is time to think about some lunch ideas that the kids will enjoy. Since children are in a period of growth, they need enough calories and good nutrients. Get inspired by our ideas for a satisfying and delicious lunch.
Sandwiches are a classic for lunch, but that does not mean that they are an unloved snack. When it comes to bread, always try to use whole wheat products because they satisfy for longer. The variety is in the filling. You can use cold cuts, cheese or cream cheese, eggs and fresh salad with cucumbers and tomatoes, or for the sweet-toothed, try Bonny chocolate spread. If your kids prefer sweet tastes, do not fail to give them some vegetables like carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes that can be snacked on right away.
2. Pancakes & Waffles
For those who love it sweet, Pancakes & Waffles are ideal on the go. You can diversify them with different toppings, like berries, bananas, nuts or chocolate sprinkles. Or turn the basic into a special and try our recipe for Chocolate Pancakes or Banana Waffles.
3. Oats on the go
All you need is a reclosable jar and then the fun can begin. Oats and milk are a good team and can be diversified with different fruits or Bonny Flavoured Milk Drinks. You can add whatever your child loves. Try our recipes for Banana, Strawberry or Raspberry Oatmeal.
4. Salads & Wraps
Salads are delicious, but sometimes they are not satiating enough. You can easily change that by filling wraps with your delicious salads. This gives the meal some extra carbohydrates which means more energy for the body. It is easily suited to green salads as well as tuna salad for example. Also find inspiration for wrap recipes in our article about Saturating Suhoor.
5. Sweets & Snacks
And last but not least, you can improve every lunchbox by adding baked goods like Brownies or simply a can of Bonny Flavoured Milk Drinks. It will definitely put a smile on your kid’s face.

Summer holidays – that means playing with friends, enjoying free time without commitments, sleeping in and school seeming far away for our kids. To make the start of the new school year easier for our kids, we have prepared five steps for a successful start.
1. Good preparation is the key
Together with your kids write down all the things that need to be prepared or done before school starts. The list may include school supply shopping for pencils and paper as well as grocery shopping for breakfast and lunch.
2. Check the school equipment
Do the sport clothes still fit and does your child have all school equipment needed? If anything is missing, write it on your list and make sure to buy it in time.
3. Time to get up early again
Begin to wake your kids up the last week in the holidays and start every day a few minutes earlier. This will prevent them from being overtired in the first weeks of school.
4. Inspire your kids’ anticipation
Inspire your kids’ anticipation with some fun activities, e.g. create a timetable together in a colourful design your kids like. They will be thrilled to use it during the new term.
5. Prepare the big day
The first day of a new beginning is always important, so make sure that everything is prepared. Pack the schoolbag the day before to avoid stress in the morning and let your children choose an outfit they want to wear. Also ask them what they want to eat for breakfast and lunch. Our tip for an energised start to the day: oatmeal.
